Pressed down and Shaken how is your oil flowing

Blessings everyone,

Did you see that title? Yes this study was a serious teaching of what should be the answers to the question, How you living? as Christians, believers in Christ we forget some important parables that we should be walking by. we go through life and leave out somethings. Like what? you ask. Have you chased someone down for money they owe you? have you saw someone hungry and rushed to eat your food with out offering half? don’t feel bad I have had my moments as well, but after reading this you will know better so start doing better. Lets get into the study…

Luke Chapter 6

As soon as we start the chapter we are given a lesson 6:1 says that Jesus and his disciples were walking through a corn field, the disciples were plucking corn and eating it. 6:2 says the Certain Pharisees asked why were the the disciples doing something unlawful. Jesus remind the Pharisees of the scripture when David went into Gods house and ate the shewbread and his men also ate the bread that only the priest should eat. Jesus said to them That the son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

That word goes right with what I said in Fridays blog. Son of Man is Lord. God lives in us we were designed to walk in power we have dominion over the Earth we are children of God mad in his image. We have been adopted in to the family of God. which means we are Lord of the Sabbath. Don’t be confused you are not God big G your god little g. let me back that up in scripture Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. Now that we have learned that, are you willing to believe that you are lord and God has empowered you to lead, in His name.

Jesus heals a man’s hand on the Sabbath

The word says that Jesus entered into the synagogue and taught and there was a man whose right hand was withered. Jesus knew the Pharisees was there to see if he would do something on the Sabbath so he told the man to rise and then he said to the people. Is it lawful on the Sabbath day to do good or evil? to save life or destroy it? Jesus told the man to stretch out his hand and the hand was restored. This caused the Pharisees to anger and speak amongst each other about what to do about Jesus.

Are you willing to stand by what God is telling you to teach. this question is penetrating in my spirit. God has been really on me about the teaching of walking in our full potential we cant do so if we do not believe that we were created to be gods. Many of us were taught that it is blasphemy to believe that we are gods. not understand the commandment to not put no god above God. it’s more than praying to Allah or Buddha. It’s about putting man above the Father Son and Holy Spirit. for instance your pastor is god little g but your pastor says don’t work on Sunday, but God big G opens the door for you to be somewhere on Sunday (Certain Day) you have put little g before the order of Big G. Years of people watering down the word of God as caused a confusion. I realize that even if I get condemned or taunted I am willing to teach what the word of God backs me up with, let’s not forget that God confirms the word of His servant.

Jesus selects the twelve disciples

Here are the names of the disciples who also will be names apostles; Simon (Peter). Andrew, James, John, Philip, and Bartholomew, Matthew and Thomas, James, Simon Judas, and Judas Iscariot.

Jesus gives the beatitudes

Jesus started to speak to the sick and unclean spirits and virtue went out of them and he healed them. then he lifted his eyes to his disciples and started to speak on our binds in Heaven and Earth. He said Blessed are the poor you will have the kingdom of God; Blessed are the hungry, you will be filled. Blessed are those that cry, you shall laugh. Blessed are those that are hated, they will hate you and reject your name for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice that day for your reward is in heaven. woe to those that are rich, for you have recieved you consolation. woe unto those that are full! for you shall hunger. woe to those that laugh now, for you shall weep.

These words are powerful, the poor always wish to be rich and so they pray and seek God, some rich have no need so they have all they may ask and forget about seeking God for certain needs. Now see that I said certain because their are some rich that are reach because the seek God because they moved in manifestation.

Jesus teaches about fruit in peoples lives

This is a great lesson, this is where the saying the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree comes from. How we are is what we bring forth. you steal you train everything that comes from you it’s okay to steal. you praise and worship your children will praise and worship. God example I have always prayed and spoke God’s name but didn’t always go to church, my first to children don’t go to church but the listen for God and pray. I now go to church and work for God my last three children love going to church and working in the church. Both children were trained different. I myself didn’t go to church because my mother didn’t take me, I studied the word of God because I was seeking and found why was I seeking because I come from a Tree that started on faith and service to God. the apple didn’t fall far.

Jesus teaches about those who build house on rock and sand

This teaching you should keep in your mind all the time. when we lean on God even when the storms come we will not sink. when we place our faith in man especially man that has not connected to God we sink, it’s not a solid foundation. God will send life savers, divine connections to revive you but first you have to grab a hold of the rock (call on Jesus).

I pray that this lesson has caused you to go into prayer about walking in your full potential and being who you were created to be may God bless your Journey

I encourage you to read this blog with your bible, it’s important to see what the Lord is saying to you. This chapter has lessons and those lessons will cause you to self check and change your walk. the change of your walk will allow the oil to flow in your life. Yes your going to have some convictions about how you have been behaving but convictions are not to cause you to run but to bring you closer to God for guidance.

Enjoy your journey in praise

Isaiah Chapter 5

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are moving in God’s will for us.

I have been missing in action but I’m never too far and never but for so long.

This time I thought “well maybe the assignment is over” but God said no it hasn’t even began.

With that being said let’s get started.

To the followers; thank you for your support and your like and shares. You all have been a push in getting God’s word out there.

If you enjoyed this study and happen to have stumbled on this blog by scrolling,Welcome. If you are led please like, follow and share.

Let me introduce myself; My name is

Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God.

Some of the ways that I serve God can be found in the about section. I use to put the intro in every Blog but with us moving in year 3 there are some changes. What you can find there is ( mininstries, prayer, social medias and email)

Let’s get to the word

Isaiah Chapter 5

The song of the vineyard

Verse 1-7

I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard on a fertile hillside.

He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines.

He built a tower in it’s midst and also made a winepress in it.

So he expected it to bring forth good grapes, but it brought forth wild grapes.

And now people of Jerusalem and Judah; Judge between me and my vineyard.

What more could have been done for my vineyard, than I have done for it.

When I wanted good grapes why did it bring me wilds grapes.

Now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard.

I will take away it’s hedge and it will be destroyed. I will breakdown it’s walls and it will be trampled.

I will make it a waste land, neither pruned nor cultivated and briers and thorns will grow there.

I will command the clouds not to rain on it.

The vineyard of the Lord is the nation of Israel. And the people of Judah are the vines he delighted in.

And he looked for justice but saw bloodshed for righteousness, but heard cries of distress.

The Lord clears and strategically places us, giving us free will and then we start to break the laws just for self pleasure.

We become bad grapes. Imagine planting your grapes happy and waiting with expectation and your grapes come out all rotten and some are just not growing.

You have to figure how to get rid of all that bad fruit.

The Lord says I’m going to make sure to dry that land out. No cultivating, why?

To start over

Woes and Judgement

Verse 8 -17

Misery to you who add house to house and join field to field till no space is left, and you live alone in the land.

The Lord has declared to Isaiah

Surely the great houses will become worthless, empty the fine mansions left without occupants.

The vineyard will produce only 6 gallon of wine 360 pounds of seeds will only yield 36 pounds of grains.

Misery to those who rise early in the morning to get drunk.

Who stay up at night until they are inflamed with wine.

They have harps and lures at there banquet, piper, timbrets and wine; but have no regards for the deeds of the Lord.

No respect for thw work of his hands, there for my people will go in exile for lack of understanding.

Those of high rank will die of hunger and common people will be parched with thirst.

There for death expands it’s jaws opening wide it’s mouth;

Into it will descend their nobles and masses with all their brawlers and revelers

So people will be brought low and everyone humbled.

The eyes of arrogant, humbled,

But the Lord Almighty will be exalted by his justice and the holy God will be proved holy by his righteous acts.

Then sheep will graze as in their own pastire lambs will eat among the ruins of the rich.

This word is solid, the Lord is saying if you are one person and you want to buy all the houses and fields you can.

Expect your fields and house to be empty, we can’t be greedy glutiny does not reside in the spirit of God.

We can not be ready to take all and not concern ourselves about the concerns of others.

Strangers will come in and prosper well with your scraps, leftovers. Your ruin.

Verse 18-30

Misery to those who bring sin, with lies, and sneakyness; and wickedness like you pulling it with a cart.

To the ones who wants God to hurry so they can see his work, so they can see it.

The plan of the holy one of Israel let it approach, let it come into view, so we may know it.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Misery to the ones who are hero’s of drinking wine and champions of mixing drinks, who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent.

Therefore as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so there roots decay.

And their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the lord Almighty and spurned the word of the holy one of Israel.

Therefore the Lord’s anger burns against his people; his hand is raised and he strikes them down.

The mountains shake; and the dead bodies are like refuge in the streets.

He lifts up a banner for the distant nations, he whistles for those at the earth.

Here they come, swiftly and speedily! Notvone of them grows tired or stumbles, not one slumbers or sleep;

Not a sandal sharp, all their arrows are sharp. All their bows are strung; their horses hooves seem like flint, their chariot wheels like a whirlwind.

Their roar like lions; they growl has they seize Their prey and carry it off with no one to rescue.

In that day they will roar over it like roaring of the sea.

And if one looks at the land, there is only darkness and distress even the sun will be darkened by clouds.

If we are going through life looking for our next drink, and living for our next drink we are searching for something missing. If we sit and listen our thirst will be quenched.

Blessings now for the important part.

If You are in need of some answers, it starts with a relationship with God our Lord and savior. Turn your bible to Roman 10:9 and cofess and believe with your mouth and heart, Jesus is Lord, he died for our sins and was raised from the did according to the Scripture. You shall be saved.

Be Blessed

Matthew Chapter 6

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that you all are going forth with full power, not half power but full power. When we walk in faith, we are walking with God, we are allowing God to led us in to everyplace that he knows that we will soar in. So today where ever God is leading you please go forth in the full power that God has gifted you in.

Another way that I serve is as one of the leaders in the Walk It Out group that can be found on Facebook and periscope. Okay let’s get into the word.

Matthew Chapter 6

Jesus Teaches about giving to the needy

Verse 1- 4

Jesus Teaches us to be careful not to display our righteous acts, for everyone to see. The word says If you do, you will have no reward from your father in heaven. The Lord says be sure not to announce your charitable deeds with trumpets like the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. The Lord says when you give to the needy, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving maybe in secret. Then your father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

 

Praise God, this verse is very important especially in this day. I have scrolled on Facebook and seen videos of people feeding the homeless and just had to press record.  When we have been moved in our heart to do something for someone else and we have the means to do that thing. The Lord says that it is important that we go forth in secret if you press play for a praise from others then you have been rewarded already.

You can’t serve two gods so either you go forth and get the praise from man, or you go forth and allow the lord to open the storehouse and pour out your reward. I don’t know about you but if I am obeying the Lord by helping someone who needs me then I don’t want the praise of man, because the praise isn’t for us it’s for God who gave us the means to provide what was needed.

Verse 5 – 15

Jesus Teaches about Prayer

Jesus has spoken to us about praying, we are told not to go and pray standing out in other places, but to go to a room, close the door, and pray to your father, who is unseen. Then your father sees what you have done in secret, he will reward you. Jesus says and when you pray do not keep babbling like pagans, because they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them for your father knows what you need before you ask him. Jesus says this is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts,

Has we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one.

Jesus says If you forgive men who sin against you, your heavenly father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your father will not forgive your sins.

 

The word tells us that when we pray go to a quiet place so that you can hear the Lord. When we are in church and we are in the street we pray in fellowship but we should be spending personal time with God.

Jesus shows how to begin our prayers. When we pray we are saying, Our father in heaven Holy is your name. we are asking God to lead us by his will on this earth as he has placed in heaven. God places us high, we place ourselves low. Anything that we would like to have God wants us to have better. we cannot even imagine the things that we could have. I am not only talking about material, if you are going to God for material things then you are going for the things that you idealize. I’m talking about better spiritually because you can have all the material things that you desire and still feel empty. You want peace of mind in a beautiful place, you want to be filled with the glory of God and your overflow will surround you. We want God to give us our instruction for the day, our daily lessons. We want the father to forgive us for the things that we owe him. Forgive us for not spending time with him, forgive us for not following his law, forgive us for not listening to his instructions. when we don’t deposit in to the storehouse how can we expect to have a bountiful overflow when the lord opens the storehouse (If you want to know more about the storehouse, go to Deuteronomy chapter 28). We make a covenant to forgive those who take away from us, forgive those that owe us. We ask God to not lead into temptation, but keep us from evil.

Anything that you want from the Father he already knows, he knows all things, so while we have finished the begin of the prayer, we are to be ready to praise him for already fixing it. Our faith is knowing that everything that comes our way has already been fixed and prepped better.

we can’t go around thinking we are too good to forgive someone who has wronged us, and expect God to forgive us. We should be ready to say if you did this to me or that to me, then you must have been fighting a spiritual battle that you lost. I am not mad at you, I will offer pray for your strength the next time your spirit goes to war.

 

Verse 16 – 18

Jesus teaches about fasting

Jesus tells us that when we fast, don’t walk around looking somber to show people that you are fasting. Jesus says when you are fasting put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it is not obvious to men that you are fasting, but to the Father, and he sees what you have done and he will reward you.

We should not be walking around looking distressed and hungry when we are fasting. When we are fasting, we are in God’s presence and we should not be worried about who knows that we are fasting. Your fast isn’t about others it is about you and God. Now if you are led to have a group fast, you’re not going to be walking around like it is the worst thing you ever done, and you can’t wait to be finished. You should be walking with the glory of God on you.

 

Verse 19-24

Jesus teaches about money

Jesus teaches not to horde the treasures that is of this earth, but to horde the treasures of heaven. Because where your treasures are, your heart will be

 

 No need to rush out to get new things to put on display, do not need to break our back to make money to have the best of everything for ourselves. when we are more worried about making money for ourselves we are busy in selfishness. We are not busy for the spiritual purposes, matter of fact we are so busy on our hustle for more money, more things, that we let days, weeks, months go by before we spent time with God. We lose focus on what the true treasure is, like I said earlier you can have all the material things and the best of them but if you  aren’t linked to God your spirit is still going to feel empty, you’re in debt with God.

 

Verse 25 – 33

Jesus Teaches about Worry

Jesus tells us not to worry about food and clothes, Jesus askes us; isn’t your life and your body more important than food and clothes? Jesus reminds us to look at the birds, they do not sow, reap, or store, and doesn’t the Father provide for them, aren’t you more valuable to him than they are? Jesus asks; by worrying can you add an hour to your life?

Jesus says O’ you of little faith? Do not worry about what to eat or what to drink or what you’re going to wear. Your father knows that you need them, seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble.

Amen I cannot say it enough when we worry about things of this earth, we eliminate faith. Our worry, especially to a believe says that God isn’t Sovereign. I’m not saying it’s easy, what I am saying is keep moving in God’s presence so that you may be led to the things of God, and anything that is of God is good.

Be Blessed

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

Matthew Chapter 4

logo_2042734_web

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that in this day the angels are lifting you up so that your feet will not strike against any stone.

It gets hard and confusing at times, just continue to push through and grab on to God’s vision. We may not know what is going to be standing in front of us, but what we do know is that we WILL be lifted over it.

Matthew Chapter 4

Satan Tempts Jesus in the desert

Verses 1-11

The word tells us that after Jesus was Baptized by John the Baptist, the spirit led him in to the desert to be tempted by the devil. After he fasted for forty days and forty nights he was hungry. The word says the tempter came and said

If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread

Jesus answered

It is written: Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word, that comes from the mouth of God

The word says that the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple

If you are Son of God, he said throw yourself down. For it is written

He will command his angels concerning you,

And they will lift you up in their hands,

So that you will not strike your foot against a stone

Jesus answered him

It is also written

Do not put the Lord your God to the test.

The word says that the devil took him to the highest mountain and said

All this I will give you, if you will bow down and worship me.

Jesus said

Away from me Satan, for it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.

Then the devil left and the angels attended to him

When we are walking toward righteousness and moving in the provision of God. We get tempted. Tempted to go back and do the things that we once have done. Tempted to step out of character. Think of Jesus who Commanded Satan to get away from him.

It’s time for us to start to command the tempter to go! And when we command Satan to go the angels will come and attend to us. Why? Because the Holy Spirit lives within us.

 

Jesus begins his ministry

Verses 12- 17

The word says when Jesus heard that John had been put in prison he returned to Galilee this fulfilled the prophesy through Isaiah

Land of Zubulun and land of Naphtali,

The way to the sea, along the Jordan,

Galilee of the Gentiles

The people living in darkness

have seen a great light;

on those living in the land of shadow of death

a light has dawned.

From that time on Jesus began to preach,

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.

No matter what goes in in our lives as Christians, we learn that the most valuable information to pass on is Salvation.

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near

This was the beginning of Jesus’s ministry be for the miracle signs, and wonders it was repent.

What the Father has already put in place will come to pass. What the father has already meant for your purpose on this earth is already waiting in the spirit realm.

 

Verses 18 – 22

Four fishermen follow Jesus

The word says that Jesus was walking along the sea and saw Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew throwing there fishing net and Jesus said to them.

Come follow me and I will make you fisher of men

And they followed. Then he saw James and his brother John who were in a boat with their father and Jesus called to them tow come with him and they did.

As I was writing this I asked why fishermen? the Holy Spirit reminded me how patient fishermen are, how patient we have to be when ministering to people. Some will jump in the net but others will run and you will have to be patient enough to let them come on their own.

 

Verses 23 – 25

The word tells us that Jesus went through Galilee preaching the good news of the kingdom in synagogues, healing the sick, ill, and disable.

When we think about Jesus we think about his sacrifice, paying the ransom for our souls. But getting to know Jesus is about his walk before he got to the sacrifice. The walk that some of us struggle to walk. The faith that it takes to allow God to rule over every aspect of our lives taking nothing back that we have given him.

Faith that allows us to be patient fishermen, faith that confirms that we are servants for the kingdom of God. Faith that allows us to heal, pray, and overcome. Faith that allows us to believe that the angels Will lift us up and our feet will not strike against a stone.

 

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

1 Samuel Chapter 9

verse 1 – 10

Samuel Anoints Saul

A Benjamite who’s name was Kish had a son by the name of  Saul. The bible says that Saul was an exceptional man who had no equals among the Israelite’s.  Donkeys that belonged to Kish had gone missing. Kish sends Saul and a servant out to look for the donkeys. After traveling and looking for the donkeys Saul and the servant had not found the any donkeys.

When they reached the district of Zuph, Saul told the servant that it was time to stop before his father starts worrying about them and not the donkeys. The servant tells Saul that there was a man of God in the town who was highly respected and everything that he says comes true. The servant suggest to Saul that they try going to the man of God to see which way to take.

Saul says to the servant if “we go see the man what can we give him as a gift?” The servant offered up a quarter to give to the man of God. Saul agreed and they went to see the man of God.

Praise God! that the servant was ready. When we are standing at a decision to go in the way of God or turn in the other direction. There will be some excuse that will keep us from where God is expecting us to be. Just as the servant was ready with the quarter, God will send someone or something to come and knock that excuse to the ground. Now we have to make the decision to walk forward or turn around. 

Verse 11

Saul and the servant met ran into girls on their way to draw water and asked them if the seer (Man of God) was there. The women told them to hurry up and catch him before he goes to the high hill to bless the sacrifice for the town. Saul and the servant caught up with Samuel as he was on his way to high ground.

The bible tells us that the day before Saul came to Samuel God had told Samuel that a man would come to him from Benjamin and he was to anoint the man as leader. the man would be the one who will deliver the Israelite’s from the hands of the Philistines. The Lord told Samuel that he heard the cry of his people.

When Samuel saw Saul God spoke to him and told him that Saul was the man that he had told him about. Saul asks Samuel if he know where the seer was? Samuel tells him that he is the seer and to go up to the high place, that he (Saul) will be eating with Samuel and in the morning he will tell him all that is in his heart. Samuel tells Saul that the donkeys that he lost have already been found. Samuel says to Saul; to whom all desire of Israel turn, if not to you and all your father’s family.

Saul answers Samuel by saying that he is not a Benjamite, from the smallest clan of Israel  and his clan is the least of all the tribes of Benjamin. Why would you say something like that to me.

Samuel brought Saul and the servant to the hall and had them sit at the head of the table among the people that were invited. Samuel tells the cook to bring the piece of meat that he told him to put to the side.

The cook placed a leg and what was on it in front of Saul. Samuel tells Saul to eat because it had been set aside for him for the occasion, from the time he invited him.

When they came from the high place Samuel told Saul to get ready, he told Saul to send his servant ahead and he stay behind, he had a message from God for him (Saul).

Praise God! God will send someone to you with a message, some would say confirmation. the path to where you need to be may take a while to get to, by the time you arrive in position the food will be ready.

God sets aside what is meant for you, when you arrive in position and sit at the table, your plate will be placed in front of you to feast. You have to take the journey, you have to go looking for the lost donkeys. It’s in faith that God has prepared something for you, that allows you to take the journey to get to the table.

In this day, take the time to meditate on your journey are you walking toward the table? Are you looking for the lost donkeys? Are you standing on your foundation of faith? Remember what Samuel told Saul his plate had been set aside since he invited him. God has placed your plate to the side, now take the journey toward the table in the High Place.

Be Blessed!

1 Samuel Chapter 5

Hello Everyone,

I pray that you woke up in praise on this Tuesday morning. The Lord has blessed us this day another chance to get it right and make it happen for his name sake. Put a praise on it.

Here is where we get together and share the word of the Lord for daily bible study. If you enjoy the study please follow so that you can receive notification of new post. Don’t forget to follow the Facebook pages. Let me introduce myself.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. This is one of the ways that I new-journey-in-praise-flyerserve the Lord some of the others are. The Journey In praise ministry which is three parts the blog serves as a word of the day, The Podcast serves as a word of encouragement, and broadcast serves as sharing of building a foundation of faith like bricks through the study of christian books. Also there is the Prayer wall if you would like to be added you can email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com okay let’s get in to the word.

1 Samuel Chapter 5

1-samuel-1024x576the Ark in Ashdod and Ekron

verse 1 -5

The Philistines took the Ark to Ashdod and the put it in Dagons temple. the scripture says that the next morning Dagon had fallen  on his face in front of the Ark. They placed Dagon back in his place and the next day he had fallen again this time his head and hands had been broken off and placed on the threshold. The scipture says that no one steps on the threshold in Dagons temple.

Praise God! to put a representative of God in a place where you worship Idols, no way your coming back from that. As I was reading this word I thought about how it is not good to  sit on the fence when it comes to our walk with God. We can’t be out to serve God and walk with him and do the things that the Lord is not for. I remember when I first started this walk and I was still smoking and drinking wine, I one day had a vision of the holy spirit leaving me because I couldn’t let go of the cigarettes I was placing the cigarettes (my idol) over God and forcing God to be around it. Then I prayed for the need for it to be broken from my spirit and that’s exactly what happen. The next day the desire for the cigarettes were gone. When we idolize something and put it before God, our faith and need to be pleasing to God allows the spirit to come and break that thing. it’s built on a foundation of faith that he is able. The fact that the Philistines feared God was acknowledgment that they had faith that he does exist, and can destroy them.

verse 6 – 12

While the Ark of God was in Ashdod the hand of God was heavy on the people. Some ended up with tumors and others died so they decided to move it to Gath. In Gath it did the same, so the people got together with the elders and they decided to take it to Ekron when the people of Ekron saw that the Ark was coming and there was an out cry. The elders decided to send the Ark back. The people of Gath, Ekron, and Ashdod died and for those who didn’t die they suffered with tumors. The cry went up to heaven.

This chapter makes me think of the power of God in chapter four yesterday we saw that when the Israelites learned that the Ark had been captured the suffered an outcry. Eli and his family suffered death, they felt that God had left them. depending on the power of God as christians when we fell he’s not around we feel lost like Israelites. Now for the Philistines they worshipped Dagon and feared God The power that the Ark had on them was afflicting tumors and death. They new they were doing wrong taking the Ark of God, and almost expected repercussions.

Now for the Important part if you are looking for Salvation if you will like to start a new and be in the presence of God turn your bible, google, or download the free bible app and turn to Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth that Jesus christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. start a prayer life and get in to the word and allow the Lord to turn it around for you.

Ezekiel Chapter 18

Happy Monday Everyone,

I pray that you all had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed a bit of time to yourself. It is important to the betterment of you that you take a moment to build yourself. make some time to just sit with God and wait for him to give you instruction.

For those who do not know my name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve the Lord is through this bible study blog. This is where I come to you guys with the word of the Lord so that we can spend sometime with God. Romans 1:17 tells us in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed,  a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written, the righteous will live by faith. This tells us through the word, God will reveal himself and build our faith. Glory to God. Next is the Journey In Praise ministry where you can find me on FaceBook (@journeyinpraise), periscope (@WilhelminaLundy) and YouTube @(journeyinpraise) Itunes (@journeyinpraise) and soundcloud (@journeyinpraise) at these outlets you can find me speaking the word of the Lord, and last but not least the prayer wall If you would like to be added to the prayer wall you can email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com. Now let’s get in to the word.

Ezekiel chapter 18

The soul who sins will die

verse 1 -3 

Ezekiel says the word of the Lord came to him and said ” what do you people mean when you quote the proverb ‘The father’s eat sour grapes and the children’s teeth are set on edge’ ” the Lord says’ “surely as I live you will no longer quote this proverb in Israel. for every living soul belongs to me, the father as well as the son – both alike be long to me.The  soul who sins is the one who will die.

The Lord says in these voices know the son wont reap the father’s actions but you all belong to me everyone is responsible for his on salvation so weather our fathers walked upright or sinned has nothing to do with what we will have to face. you sin you die.

verse 5-9

The Lord says that a man who is walking upright and follows his decrees,who treat people with honesty and respect, and gives to the poor is a man who will surely live. Glory to God.

The Lord reminds us that we are here to do right and live unpunished walking in his way and listening to his voice knowing right from wrong and abiding by them treating our brethren fair and giving to those who have not.  

verse 10-13

Tells us that a man who sins and does detestable things will surely die his blood will be on his own head. he knew right from wrong.

verse 14 – 17

The 14th verse starts out saying suppose a son sees all the sins of his father, and even though he see’s them he doesn’t commit them he will not die for his father’s sins he will live for living upright.

Verse 18 -20

These’s verses say to us the righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him. A son who is seeing to it that he follows the laws and Decrees of God s=hould not have to pay for his fathers sins, his father will die for his own sin.

verse 21 – 24

The Lord says to Ezekiel If a wicked man changes his ways and stops sinning then he will live none of the sins that he committed will be remembered . If a righteous man turns away from his righteousness then he will not live and none of his righteous acts will be remembered. He is more pleased when the wicked changes his ways and lives then the Death of the wicked.

Verse 25- 32

The Lord address Israels opinion that he is unjust reminding them that he will save the life of a man who was wicked and decided to turn from all the wicked things he did and save his life. why shouldn’t the man who was righteous die after being righteous and then turning to wicked. He willingly decided that he didn’t want to follow the laws of God.

This chapter reminds us that if we do wrong we reap the consequences. all the Sovereign Lord wants us to do is be in a relationship with him. the more we study and stay in the word the closer we get to him the more we want to please him. Last Thursday I had an honor in joining in on pastor Kimberly Jones Prayer Protocol Boot camp. It was a phenomenal experience I came out of the experience understand how Important it is to be in Gods presence. Activating the ability to pray in the spirit. If you are interested you can find more info at Kimberly J.net 

Now to the Important stuff, If you are looking for salvation and ready to begin that relationship with God. Google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. get yourself in a relationship with God and allow him to turn it around for you. Building confidence ,faith and strength. He will do it for you. Praise God

Ezekiel Chapter 13 false prophets condemned

verse 1-7

Ezekiel says that the word of the Lord came to him. Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. say to those who are prophesying out of their own Imagination; ‘Here the word of the Lord this is what the sovereign says; Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and has seen nothing! Your prophets O’Israel are like jackals among ruins. you have not gone up to the breaks in the wall to repair it for the house of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the day of the Lord. There visions are false and there divinations are a lie. they say “the Lord declares,” when the Lord has not sent them; yet they expect there words to be fulfilled. Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divination when you say, “The Lord declares,” though I have not spoken?

I’m sure that you have heard many times to beware of false prophet. In verses 1-7 God is saying to Ezekiel it’s time for you to prophesy about those that are not building anyone, that are speaking their imagination, I have not spoken. In the Romans 1:17 tells us in the gospel God is revealed. In our knowledge of the word God will tell us, what is from him and what is from someones imagination. That’s why it is important to move forth in our study and reach to eat from the tree of life. being close to God is living.

verse 8- 12

Ezekiel says, the Lord says to him to say  Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions,  I am against you, declares the sovereign Lord. My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people, or be listed in the records of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the sovereign Lord. Because they lead my people  astray, saying, “peace,” when there is no peace, and because, when a flimsy wall is built, they cover it with whitewash, therefore tell those who cover it with whitewash that it is going to fall. rain will come in torrents, and I will send hailstones hurtling down, and violent winds will burst forth. when the wall collapses, will people not ask you, where is the whitewash you covered it with?

A prophet is to build the people for whats to come. The Lord tells Ezekiel tell the false prophets that the have led his people astray using the word peace when there wasn’t any peace. The Lord says to Ezekiel to tell the false prophets, that they will not be in the Land of Israel and they will not be listed in the record.

verse 13 – 16

Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: In my wrath I will unleash a violent wind, and in my anger hailstones and torrents of rain will fall with destructive fury. I will tear down the wall you have covered with whitewash and will  level it to the ground so that its foundation will be laid bare. When it falls, you will be destroyed in it;  and you will know that I am Lord. So I will spend my wrath against the  wall and against those who covered it with whitewash. I will say to you, the wall is gone and so are those who whitewashed it, those prophets of Israel who prophesied Jerusalem and saw visions of peace for her when there was no peace, declares the Sovereign.

The Lord says he will send a storm and tear down the whitewash. If you are built up with weakness when you go through the storm those walls will fall down.

verse 17 – 19

The Lord says to Ezekiel; Now son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people who prophesy out of their own imagination. Prophesy against them and say, This is what the Sovereign Lord says; Woe to the woman who sew magic charms on all their wrists and make veils of various lengths for their heads in order to ensnare people. Will you ensnare the lives of my people but preserve your own? You have Profaned me among my people for a few handfuls of barkley and scraps of bread. By lying to my people, who listen to lies, you have killed those who should not have died and have spared those who should not live.

The Lord says to the women who disrespected him for scraps and bread that they have trapped the Lords people, you have killed those that could have been saved. yet spared those who should have been dead. all for your own gain. when you false prophesy you are setting a person up on the wrong road you are selfishly effecting their lives. making them believe that they will be closer to God in the charms and veils.

verse 20 -23

Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people who you ensnare like birds. I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the Lord.Because you disheartened the righteous with your lies, when I had brought them no grief, and because you encourage the wicked not to turn from their evil ways and so save their lives. therefore you will no longer see false visions or practice divination. I will save my people from your hands. And then you will know that I am the Lord.

The Lord says that he is against the charms and veils that he is not in it. The Lord says that he will break his people from the power believing in the charms and veils and then they will know that he is sovereign. It makes me think about the television shows selling holy water and anointed oil and prayer clothes making people believe that God will hear them more clear if the do this our sow that. the way to God is in relationship. I don’t like to speak on others ministry but I will tell you before you buy in to all that know where your faith is.

Now for the important part If you are looking for salvation google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Get your self in to a relationship with God through the Word and allow God to place you on high and order your steps God Bless You

Ezekiel Chapter 6: A Prophecy Against the Mountain of Israel

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of the Most High Sovereign God. There is nothing better than being a servant of the Almighty. The ways that I serve the Lord is this blog, and the Journey In Praise blog and broadcast. If you are on Periscope you can catch the broadcast Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7pm. If you don’t have Periscope you can catch the up and view the videos at @journeyinpraise on YouTube and FaceBook. Okay let’s get in to the word

Ezekiel Chapter 6

verse 1-7

The Lord says Ezekiel, to set his face against the mountains of Israel and; Prophesy against them and say:  The Sovereign Lord says that he will bring a sword against you and destroy your high places. You alters and incense alters will be demolished. The Lord says to tell Israel that he will slay the people in front of their idols. your people will fall slain and know that I am Lord.

 verse 8- 10

The Lord says that he will spare some, and some will escape the land.  When Israel is scattered among the land, and the nations. Those who escaped will remember the Lord. The Lord says; how I have been grieved  by your adulterous hearts which have turned away from me, and by their eyes which lusted after their Idols. They will loathe (dislike) them selves for the evil they have done. They will know I am Lord , I did not threaten them in vain to bring this calamity on them

In these verses we learned that the Lord sends the warning ing Ezekiel’s Prophesy letting Israel know all the things that will come to the. The Lord also lets them know why. While reading I thought about all that we do now . If your smart phone or wi-fi no-longer works what would you do? are we Idolizing those things, putting them before God. Even as I write this blog I think a couple of times I checked my phone, For what? I don’t know. what I do know is through this lesson I know, that I need to ask God to make me less dependant on the things that are not of him.

verse 11-14

In these verse The Lord tell Ezekiel to tell Israel that the will fall from, the sword, plague ,and famine. those that are close will die from the sword, those that are far away will die from the plague and those that survives will suffer from famine. the Lord says that he will make the land that they live a waste.

Just think God gave them 390 years to get their stuff together. we are lucky that we have Jesus christ who took on the suffering for us. I’m sure looking outside or even scrolling Facebook you are seeing less of the Lord everyday. Lets not be like Israel lets take note of the warning, so that we may see the blessing and not the famine

Ezekiel Chapter 3

verse 1-9

Ezekiel is continuing from chapter 2 (scroll down to 10/21 post). Ezekiel says God says son of man eat this scroll, then go speak to the house of Israel. Ezekiel opens his mouth and the Almighty feeds him the scroll, the Lord tells him to eat the scroll and fill his stomach with it. Ezekiel ate the scroll and says it taste as sweet as honey.

Ezekiel says then God says Son of man go to the house of Israel and speak my words to them. he says God says to him you are not being sent to a people of obscured (unknown) speech, and difficult language, but to the house os Israel. Not to many people of obscured speech, and diffcult language, whose words you cannot understand. the Lord says Surely if I had sent you to them,they would have listened to you. But the house of Israel are not willing to listen to you, because they are not willing to listen to me. The Lord says to Ezekiel that the whole house of Israel is harden, and obstinate ( stubborn refusing to change your opinion)  but I will make you unyielding and as harden as they are. I will make your forehead like the hardest stone, harder than flint. he says do not be afraid of them, or terrified by them though they are a rebellious house.

Praise God! did ya’ll read that, The Lord said go ahead and eat these words, and fill up with what I need you to tell them. In other words digest, nurture, chew and swallow. you know it’s like when you eat, and your body takes in the vitamins that it needs to survive. That’s how we need to eat the words of the Lord, that it becomes apart of us. Praise God! He says go on ahead, to the house of Israel, and I’m going to make you hard  like them. The Lord will make it so that you won’t change your words, or back down. He won’t send us any where, without the strength to deal with who we have to deal with. We just can’t be fearful or terrified of who they are, or what they say out their mouths. once we are fearful, where does our faith go. ( I’m just gonna, leave that right there.) 

verse 10-15

Ezekiel says that the Lord says to him, Son of man  listen carefully, and take these words to heart. Go now to the countrymen in exile, and speak to them. Tell them this is what the sovereign Lord says whether they chose to listen or not.

Ezekiel says then the spirit lifted him up, and he heard behind him a loud rumbling sound, It was the sound of the beings wings rubbing together, and the sound of the wheels beside them, a loud rumbling. Ezekiel says then the spirit lifted him up, and took him, and his spirit was bitter and angry, with the strong hand of the Lord upon him.

Ezekiel begins to tell us about the exiles, he sat among the ones who lived at the Tel abib near the kebar River. he sat with them for seven days overwhelmed.

when Ezekiel speaks of feeling bitter and angry it’s because he felt the sin, and attitudes of the exile his spirit was overwhelmed and he need to just pray and digest the words from God and the assignment at hand. Sometimes are assignments can scare us. Lets remember Jesus in the Gethsemane garden, Jesus prayed; my father, if it’s possible, may this cup be taken from me, not my will, but your will be done. (If it’s your will) Hallelujah! Jesus had a moment. After realizing what was ahead of him Ezekiel Had moment hallelujah, My God from Zion.

verse 16-19

warning to Israel

Ezekiel says at the end of the seven days the Lord came to him, he tells him that he has made him the watchman for Israel, The lord tells him to hear his words and speak and give them warning for him. The Lord says to Ezekiel when I say tell the wicked man that he will die for his sin, and you don’t tell him , his blood is on your hands. The Lord also says, If you give him the warning, and he doesn’t listen, he will die of sin, but you will be saved.

Jesus! the Lord is saying if we don’t do what we are told then comes the consequences. If I don’t write the blog then someone misses the message. If my walk it out sister Tiffany, doesn’t take her assignment serious someone will miss prayer, and the word that God gives her. If who ever doesn’t follow the warning, he will die for his sin. I’m not going to touch on accountability. What I will say is,  if we are not obedient, then we will start to feel conviction. 

verse 20-23

The Lord says that if a righteous man turns from his righteousness and the He sends a warning or a block and they take it, they will die. The Lord tells Ezekiel since you did not warn him, he will die for his sin. The righteous things that the wicked man did , will not be remembered and the Lord says to Ezekiel he will be held accountable for his blood. The Lord says to Ezekiel If you do warn the wicked man and he listens then he will live, and you will have saved yourself.

Ezekiel says the hand of the Lord was on him there,he told Ezekiel to get up and go out to the plain, and he will speak to him. Ezekiel says he got up and went to plain and the Glory of the Lord was standing there, and he fell to his face.

The Lord had to explain to Ezekiel how serious his assignment was. You can’t just sit on it we have to take heed to our assignment, not to sit on it. when you are on assignment to serve, a soul is at risk and the Heavenly father gives you the assignment to speak his words so that there hearts can open toward the Lord. it’s our job to obey and open our mouths after that, It’s up to them. but if we don’t say anything then we are not obedient.

verse 24-27 this is what the

The Lord tells Ezekiel to go into his house, and shut himself inside, he tells him, you will be tied with ropes so that you can not go out among the people. The Lord tells him I will make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth, so that you will be silent, and unable to rebuke them, they are a rebellious house. The Lord says to Ezekiel when I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you will say to them this is what the sovereign Lord says, who ever listen , let him listen, and whoever refuse let them refuse; for they are a rebellious house.

Glory to God! he says they will tie you with ropes, have you against the wall, and the Lord will keep your mouth shut up untill the time that comes for you to speak. When you speak the word and the will of God some will listen and some won’t because this is a rebellious house. No matter where he sends us to speak 

Now for the Important part, If you are looking for salvation google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Enjoy a wonderful relationship with the Sovereign God.

God Bless You!
